With the new Alphabet coming into play, major changes are going to happen and it seems they have already started. Niantic Labs, the Google owned startup, which has developed Ingress, is drifting away from its parent company. The announcement was made on its Google+ page where it stated that it plans to grow on the success of Ingress. The company said that the augmented reality game has been downloaded over 12 million times and more than 25,000 people have attended its live events across the globe. Niantic Labs will now function as an independent company.
